What are binNMUs?

A binNMU is a binary-only non-maintainer upload. In this case the arch: any packages are rebuild, but the arch: all packages are not. This is necessary for cases, where a simple rebuild (without any changes to the package) will fix a serious error, such as a library transition ([ example]) or a misconfiguration on the maintainer's machine ([ example]).

Where to request a binNMU?
